Melanie Martinez (Alphabet Boy, Dollhouse, and Crybaby)- In case you did not know, Melanie is known for her creepy and cute style from being on The Voice. I really love listening to the beat of her songs and the slap of reality her songs release. And yes, I am a Crybaby;)
5 Seconds of Summer (She’s Kinda Hot, Good Girls, Broken Home)- The hip new boy band. Correction, ROCK band. The beat, the voices and the members just is perfect. The members of the band are Luke Hemmings, Calum Hood, Michael Clifford, and Ashton Irwin who are all Australian.
Cher Lloyd (Activated, Just Be Mine, With your Love)- Cher Lloyd is the best-est and coolest brat ever! She started out on The Voice along with One Direction. She won fourth place and received a record deal. She is known for her unique voice and her attitude.
Rebecca Black (The Great Divide)- Yes, the Friday girl back again! Rebeccca Black was discovered by “Friday” which was a music video full of auto tune and terrible grammar (who am I to talk when I barely know when to capitalize). She has made an amazing comeback from that video with “The Great Divide.”
Chain smokers & Halsey (Closer & New Americana)- Chainsmokers have definitely improved since “Selfie.” They have come out with many new songs like “Don’t Let Me Down” or “Roses.” Halsey however, she has an incredibly talented voice along with a very catchy beat. Together, they are unstoppable with “Closer.”
Today was one of those days filled good times, but bad times. I participated a lot today in my classes. A big difference from last year when I only raised my hand in a class like once a week. I really wanna do better in my studies so I can get out of Virginia. Virginia is beautiful, filled with stories and secrets, but unfortunately, Virginia has caused nothing but pain and tears to me. I was so upset in Social Studies where I got an eighty three on my classwork. Social Studies was always boring and never had a point, but this year we are getting into the good stuff. Mmmhmm. I always watch conspiracy theories on YouTube from my favorite YouTuber, Shane Dawson. But this year, I will be able to incorporate conspiracy theories with History. Still a nightmare, but better. I am looking forward to this year.
There’s this girl, she lives in my neighborhood. She loves to dance and smile. She moved to my area last year. We were friends that laughed with each other. But one day, she met her friends and I met mine. I see tons of her in the hallways now. I wish I only saw one. Every time, I regret letting her pass me, but I don’t think she feels the same. I wish she could smile at me once more. I guess that’s middle school.
We don’t talk anymore.
Today was another alright day. It is currently my eleventh day of seventh grade and I already know what is coming. I have all advanced classes and its already so stressful for me, that my mom bought me ice cream to eat whenever I’m stressed. I really want to prove everyone wrong that I am not another “smart Asian.” When you actually get to know me, I am not smart at all. I do not contain any form of street smarts whatsoever. I curse and I have more dumb moments than you can count.
I talked and joked with all my close friends about YouTube drama and laughed on and on about the Pokemon Go Song. Then we joked about drugs and smoking. Just another ordinary day I guess.
Paris is back baby! I will be posting at least once a week with some quality content! Please make sure to follow me on social media and be active on my YouTube account!
I totally feel bad for my friend! Those of you who know, or read my other posts, you will find out I am so not a sports fan. But in health class, we were learning communication skills and anger issues. I don’t know how going outside has anything to do with communication or anger skills, but I would rather go outside than do a boring lesson on how to meditate! Since my friends and I didn’t want to walk the boring track, we decided to play soccer. Well, they did, I just didn’t want to be left out. Everyone knows I’m a terrible player, but I try my best. You could even say I’m not bad. Especially since my family tree doesn’t contain any interest of sports whatsoever. So of course, there were team captains who chose their players. My two other friends are chosen first as always, while me and my other friend are always left out. My heart beats with nervousness as I can feel that there is only my friend and I left. “Paris” a team captain says. Just by that first sound, I could tell my friend was filled with embarrassment. I wanted her to keep smiling.I wanted her to keep smiling because I knew why that team captain chose me. So we finished a game, the previous captain was now playing football with the boys. Two new captains were assigned, one was my friend. She went first. “Gabby,” understandable, they’ve been friends forever. “Xandra,” ok, yah their friends, and she’s really good at soccer. As usual, me and my friend are last. It was the new guy’s turn. My friend knew him. So she thought she could be chosen first. But she was wrong. I knew why he chose me. And the reason is just so sad. A bit funny, but sad. The captain knew my friend for three years, and he still didn’t know her name. I’m so sorry.
In math class today, I forgot to answer a question on the homework work sheet, so I just filed it in with a question mark saying I didn’t know. The thing is, with my math teacher, you could say she is really strict. My definition, scary. It’s the worst thing to have a mean teacher. She also doesn’t give homework completion grades so easily. Even if its about 4 pages, she will check it. And she’ll say something if she has a problem with it. One of my friend’s, he’s been absent for a long amount of time, and he owes a lot of homework. Yah, so he kind of forgot, and it didn’t really end up well for him. So back to the story, I was scared. To do as what she wanted to do, I opened up my computer and filled in our warm-up worksheet. Everyday, while we are doing our warm-up, she checks homework. My hands start to get real sweaty as she picks up my homework. Of course, she says something. “I’m gonna have to take points off for this because it’s your responsibility, to ask me if you need help.” Phew. You will have no idea how scared I was. Just getting one in-completion grade will hurt me. Not that much, but it will. But the truth is, I’m scared to ask her a question. In elementary, I would easily raise my hand and ask with confidence. Not in my math class. I understand everything she’s teaching so far, because I make myself understand it.
